Tea Time



I made this card for a friend with whom I would love to stop by and share a cup tea. I'll enclose a tea bag with this.

I don't know who makes these stamps as I bought them unmounted in an online stamp sale. It is set of coffee and tea images and sentiments. I think I bought it a year ago and this is the first time I've inked any of them up.

The patterned paper is by Wild Asparagus and I used my cuttlebug embossing folder on the solid section for texture.

I think it is a bit too monochromatic. I painted the image with twinkling H2O's so the teapot and sugar and creamer bowls do have a bit of shimmer that isn't detectable in the scan.

Hmmmm....I may need to rethink this card. Oh well, this is my early morning card.
